Igorrr have undergone some lineup changes with vocalist Laurent Lunoir and soprano vocalist Laure Le Prunenec exiting the band. In a statement from the band, they said that Laurent has chosen not to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, as such, that could create complications when traveling on tour. For her part, Laure decided to leave so she could focus on her personal life.
In the same statement, the group announced that JB Le Bail and Aphrodite Patoulidou have joined the group as their new vocalist and soprano, respectively. Additionally, the group have also added Martyn Clement on guitar. Read the group’s full statement below:
“Few updates to share with you ! We are working hard for all the summer shows at the moment! Covid didn’t help us a lot, to say the least, but this led us to very positive changes in the band :
Laurent decided to not get vaccinated, according to his personal beliefs. Even if we disagree with him, we respect his decision of course, however this has some consequences, regarding his ability to travel with us mainly, so, to be part of the line-up for the future. To say it shortly, Laurent is not a part of the project anymore.
In the meantime, Laure informed us, after this weird “off” period in our artistic journey that she wanted more time to focus on her private life and didn’t show up at the rehearsals. As well, we fully support her.
We are of course sad to see a page of Igorrr to be over, and we wish them the best for the future, but this led us to the awesome news : we are welcoming 3 new incredible people in the band: first, the greek soprano Aphrodite Patoulidou and JB Le Bail as our new vocalists, and finally Martyn Clement as our guitar player.
It is, as challenging as exciting for us, to present to our audience this new live performance, where we’ll play many songs from our last album “Spirituality and Distortion“, plus, of course, some good ol’ Igorrr‘s tunes. Can’t wait to see you, and thanks for your support all those years .”
